Trump described the United Nations as "almost a power to bring people together like nothing else", adding he has "a feeling that things are going to happen with the United Nations like you haven't seen before".

"We pay 22 percent of the entire budget and more", he said.

Trump praised the United Nations and Guterres, who took over leadership of the worldwide body in January.

"The United Nations has tremendous potential". "You need talent, and he's got the talent".

The meeting was expected to focus on United Nations reform.

Secretary general of the United Nations - Antonio Guterres - says we live in a messy world that needs strong USA engagement.

President Donald Trump and U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres expressed optimism about the future of the United Nations under its new leadership when the two met Friday at the White House.

During that visit to the White House, Guterres met with USA national security adviser HR McMaster and dropped by the Oval Office, but there was no joint appearance with Trump.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said here on Friday that the United Nations needs strong US engagement and a "very solid cooperation" between the United States and the United Nations.

At that time, the U.S. president praised initiatives being spurred by Guterres to help ensure a more efficient United Nations operation.

The meeting between Trump and UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres is expected to focus on Trump's reform agenda, the Iran nuclear deal, Middle East peace prospects and global extremism.

The Trump administration recently announced it was pulling out of UNESCO for alleged "anti-Israel" bias.
